Canoe help... make it ship shape?
8 GoodGymers made their way 4.0km to help the Jubilee River Riverside Centre in Slough.
- Monday, 8th of October 2018
- Led by Manjit Birk
A lovely evening of running and doing good on the week that Goodgymers all around the country support the #RunAndTalk campaign with England Athletics and MIND charity..
A warm welcome to Alistair and Matty who came along to their first Goodgym session... hope you dug the task tonight! Well done for getting totally stuck in..
After a fairly brief warm up with a few choice noises from Manjit with her achey marathon legs we headed out on our fairly short run to see Jamie at the Jubilee River Riverside Centre
Jamie asked us to help on two tasks today... T-Cut a boat and dig out two tracks for loading the boat into the river
We divided into two teams... no-one minded which team they went into.. it was a case of either oar
- The Ship Shapers
- The Diggers
Forty minutes later the boat was gleaming in the moonlight .. some serious elbow grease put in by Meera, Rachel and Jenni and the tracks were dug out and the planks laid by Michael, Darren, Alistair and Matty
One happy task owner and 8 happy Goodgymers although The Diggers were getting tide so we decided to call it a night
We headed back to base and finished off with some stretching and more noises from Manjit!
Next weeks task will be a Community task with us working with the local residents, local PCSO, local parks team and local Neighbourhood Services Team from Slough Borough Council... we will be helping to tidy up a childrens play area in Cromwell Drive
Its a nice short distance of 2km one way to help those suffering with tired legs after the Slough Half Marathon

** Friday 30th November The Corner House Windsor - Goodgym Slough Christmas Drinks Do**
